  • Great Stay, Great Value

    "Let me start with where we stayed and then why only four stars. He has two properties and we opted for the hotel and not the condo. The reason not 5 stars was because the Four Seasons or the Ritz would be 5 stars, this is an excellent resort though. Your vacation will be what you make it, so I won't tell you how to spend your time and will only talk about the property. Third, this is an incredible value for what you get. I can honestly say you won't find any better accommodations for these prices...... I looked long and hard. It's clean, open, well manicured, and friendly attentive staff. There are 4 pools, I think, and a tropical waterfall in it along with a pool bar. We spent very little time on premise during the day, we left around 6:30 most mornings and found ourselves getting home around 8:30 every night, so I can't speak about lunch. Morning you have 2 options at the hotel, full sit down breakfast with options for menu or buffet. You're going to pay $40 no matter what for 2 adults. It's good, variety of options, fresh and you will find some, if not many, things you like. The other option is coffee and muffin for $6 in the gift shop. This was our option most days as we were on the go, plus we are not the type to eat a 4 course meal for breakfast usually. Dinner options are semi formal dining or bar food. We had both, and the bar food was good, again, above average. The semi formal dining was terrible and fantastic at the same time. My dish was overcooked and really just not good, however my wife's was incredible. Maybe the best plate we had all trip. My advice is order something you like, don't ask the wait staff for recommendations. All that being said, my one dish was the ONLY bad experience I had and it was very easily overlooked. The drinks are poured well, all the bartenders mix drinks the way they should be. They don't water it down or skimp on you. The rooms are clean and kept cool. As you can tell we only use the rooms to sleep and shower in, so all that was perfect. Clean sheets, beds with a plethora of pillows, showers, towels, balcony with chairs and a view of the ocean, and a desk. Everything you need plus some. Nothing old and busted. Really couldn't ask for more. There is beach access to walk along the beach if you like, otherwise Kauai is the most beautiful island of the chain and thank goodness there are no big cities and few people on the island. Enjoy the stay, relax and have fun!"

  • Perfect Vacation Rental

    "There are not enough words to describe this cottage. The location is perfect - close to shopping and the harbor. We enjoyed walking down to the beach and the park is also close by. The cottage was everything that we hoped it would be and more. It was immaculately clean and so well stocked with everything that we could ever think, including beach mats and a cooler. We cooked most of our own meals and found everything that we needed in the way of cooking utensils and cookware. The bedroom was equipped with an air conditioner but we never even turned it on since there were ceiling fans in the living room and the bedroom. We really liked being in a neighborhood instead of a condominium or a hotel and loved being serenaded by the roosters at dawn. There is wi-fi and television but we were having too much fun to even turn them on. We will definitely stay here when we return to Hawaii."

  • Convenient location!

    "Great location, less than 15 minutes to the airport and convenient, equi-distant location in terms of other activities on the island. We didn't want to stay in Princeville because it would have been too far from Waimea Canyon, and we didn't want to stay in Poipu because it would have been too far from the North Shore...voila! Kailua Beach Resort. Room was a standard hotel room, clean, and had a fantastic view of the pool/palm trees/landscaping. Mini fridge came in handy. Beach is unswimmable (which we knew) and lots of little kids at the pool. If you are looking for a quiet resort experience and plan to stay on the grounds the whole time, then this would NOT be the place for you. However, if you just need a comfortable and convenient base camp (like we did), then it fits the bill perfectly. Resort had more amenities than I thought (gym, restaurants), but we didn't take advantage of them since we were always out doing other things. Actually, I take that back; we did have Happy Hour one day from 5-7pm at the lobby restaurant, Shutters. Quick drive to Walmart to pick up necessities (7 mins) as well as to Kapaa for awesome breakfast at Java Kai. Kapaa in general was such a cute town a little drive away - two favorite restaurants were Verde (fish tacos) and Hukilau Lanai (fresh, local, original food). All in all, this hotel room suited our needs well."

  • Excellent Value - Incredible Location

    "This was our 1st trip to Kauai - but will certainly not be our last. The Kauai Beach resort was really a great choice for us. The pools w/waterfalls were greatly enjoyable. The poolside bar was friendly. Our room couldn't have been nicer. And the view of the mountains from the room was spectacular. Thank you Keith for all your help. We enjoyed our stay immensely"
